Wrong on this one:

The Proud Rebel (1958) - renewed

Type of Work: Motion Picture
Registration Number / Date: RE0000314882 / 1986-12-16
Renewal registration for: LP0000010847 / 1958-05-28
Title: The Proud rebel. By Formosa Productions.
Copyright Claimant: Film World International (PWH)
Copyright Note: C.O. correspondence.

Variant title: The Proud rebel.

As discussed elsewhere on this forum, the claimant is an unentitled and rejected claim jumper. There should be another record, though, indicating Alan Ladd's successors have renewed it.

All I could find was the phony renewal.

Well, who knows? You've chosen a tough job to do in, what seems to me, a very murky field. Your efforts are appreciated by me and many others. I would like to see that supposedly proper renewal, but if you can't find it, I sure can't, and so the murkiness remains. An Egyptologist doesn't have it any harder, and these are (supposedly) modern records. Oh well on this one, but thanks again for the time and effort that has produced some winners. I hope.
